Friends of the Bedford Public Library

The Friends is a group of people dedicated to supporting the Library and its staff. As an independent, non-profit organization, the Friends raise funds via book sales and annual membership dues. With these funds, the Friends provide library service and programs beyond those in the Library's annual budget.

- Maintain three used book sale areas in the library throughout the year (adult and children's book shops near the circulation desk on the first floor, and the upper adult book shop on the second level.)

- Gratefully accept tax-deductible donations of clean, gently-used books, CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes and audiobooks

What do the funds raised by the Friends support?

- Museum Passes or reduced-fee coupons to numerous Greater Boston area museums.

- Enrichment programs for children, teens and adults

- Purchases of special equipment and furniture for the library

- DVD collection additions

- Movie nights

- One Book, One Bedford community reading event
